A Letter To My Future Daughter-In-Law On Mother's Day

Dear Kid,

First of all let me tell you that I am eagerly waiting to meet you. You might still be in diapers somewhere. Or, you would be enjoying the diaper free days (just like my boy) and would be finding reasons to hit the flush button in the bathroom. But soon we'll meet and I'll get the pleasure of having a daughter-in-law. So, welcome to the family dear! You are going to get a new mother, may not be as perfect as yours, but definitely a caring one! This may be too early to talk to you but darling time passes in blinks and I want to be prepared for your wedding with my son.

A Letter To My Future Daughter-In-Law On Mother's Day - Vibhu & MeI promise that I would give you the best man of your life. For this, I'll put my best efforts to help my son in finding you. I'll make sure that he understands the meaning of "being a Husband" which is one of the two most important titles a man carries in his life. Other is of course "Father". He will surely know that he has to carry two biggest responsibilities of his life, as his father is doing commendable, one being a husband and other being a father!

Dear, I assure you that from your first meet; you'll find him as a courteous and respectful man. A man, who will never violate the grace and dignity of a woman. He will be a strong and humble life partner for you. He will not push and prob you into work if you first and foremost want to focus on your kids. If you want to work, he'll be happy to share responsibilities of home and kids.

He will adjust himself in your family and will grow to love them. He will clearly see that your parents have raised you with full hearts, and be profoundly grateful for them. He will be a fast friend to your siblings and a support to your parents. He will look forward to welcoming them as often as he can. He will laugh and cry with them all your married life.

He will know that belief matters a lot in relationships when faith between you both is under attack. He may want to be head of the home for financial matters but he will value your suggestions. He will surely understand that family is not an important thing, it’s everything.  He will try to shadow all sorrows and bad days with giving you reasons to smile always.

A Letter To My Future Daughter-In-Law On Mother's Day - Vibhu & Me
He may have flaws. He will get angry and frustrated, at times, in saying and doing things. Please, please forgive him and work it out. You will all be the stronger for it. I have learned from my life experiences that in front of love and humor any anger can melt down. So please use your love whenever you find friction between you both. I’ll make sure to teach the same thing to my boy as well.

More than anything else, my son will love you with everything in him. You will be the most wonderful woman in his life. You will be his best friend, the best decision he ever made. I know after you both get married, he will face conflict in balancing my and your wishes. But please remember that I am his mother and he’ll be little biased towards me.  Trust me I'll love you equally but I would always know my son better than you. Your job will be to support him and get your wishes fulfilled without putting him in any battle of preference.

Darling, It is Mother’s day today. I know as I am a doting mother, your mother will also be a devoted woman. She must be dreaming about your future and married life. Please convey my wishes to her for this very day and say her thank you that she is doing the greatest thing of her life with mothering you. I hope she would be happy to know that I am preparing her future son-in-law.

Wherever you are my future daughter-in-law, I hope you enjoy the rest of your childhood. When you are both ready, I will be more than happy to offer my son to you, knowing that he will do everything he can to take care of you. I wish that you’ll take care of him, too. All I want is to see him happy with you!


~ Love

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…
